CC Adi 4.219
- kaṁsārir api saṁsāra-
- rādhām ādhāya hṛdaye
- tatyāja vraja-sundarīḥ
kaṁsa-ariḥ—Lord Kṛṣṇa, the enemy of Kaṁsa; api—moreover; saṁsāra—for the essence of enjoyment (rāsa-līlā); vāsanā—by the desire; baddha—tied on; śṛṅkhalām—who was like the chains; rādhām—Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī; ādhāya—taking; hṛdaye—in the heart; tatyāja—left aside; vraja-sundarīḥ—the other gopīs.
“Lord Kṛṣṇa, the enemy of Kaṁsa, left aside the other gopīs during the rāsa dance and took Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī to His heart, for She is the helper of the Lord in realizing the essence of His desires.”
In this verse from the Gīta-govinda (3.1), Jayadeva Gosvāmī describes Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s leaving the rāsa-līlā to search for Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī.
